"it's inevitable..."

today i was thinking about good byes.
it was our last sunday in this ward and to be honest i wasn't terribly sad.
now don't get me wrong, it's been great.
so good byes are either getting easier or i'm just not as attached.
i think this was a mixture of both.
i met some incredible people.
i learned a lot.
i was blessed.
but i'm ready for change.
it seems everytime i say that word i have this inner battle.
one side of me just wants things the way they are.
[or used to be]
and then i get excited about new experiences and what's coming next.
when you are young you don't realize there will be so many good byes.
so many new people.
and so many old people you never want to forget.
yet, as the years go on you don't seem some as often.
others you don't even talk to any more.
and some you always remain in touch with.
i like knowing that people have changed my life.
it's something i want to embrace.
give it my all.
don't hold back.
keep the memories alive but move on.
onward and upward is what dad always says.
the front of my planner says,
"be the change you hope to see in the world."'s to change.
